Entry Point: Year 9
Anna was a student at an excellent state school in China, and was extremely academically gifted across many subjects. However, Anna struggled with English, particularly with creative writing. When she joined Connexcel, we immediately worked with her to ascertain her targets and paired her up with a tutor to offer bespoke tutoring services. As she approached her entrance examinations, she was showing greater confidence and was able to achieve a place at her first choice school, Monkton Combe! Anna’s successes in English didn’t stop there; with the continued support from her tutor, Anna ended up winning several awards for her English creative writing in school, even when in competitions with native speakers. Anna is now applying to study Economics at Cambridge and Oxford and we wish her all the luck in the world, and continue to support her.
Family: We truly can’t believe the difference in Anna, particularly in her confidence, since she started tuition with Connexcel. Connexcel have been able to identify her weaknesses and pair her with a tutor to support her with this, all whilst playing to her strengths and enabling her to achieve such excellent grades. We are so pleased with the all round service we have been offered.
